15 Cozy Fall Cabin Retreats to Help You Escape This Labor Day Weekend

In my dream world, life is perpetually autumn. No other seasons exist. We get to wear sweaters all year long, pumpkin spice lattes are a constant fixture, and the most pressing thing on anyone’s to-do list is to snuggle up with a good book in a secluded little cabin tucked away in a remote natural oasis where the leaves are always a glorious shade of gold.

If it’s not clear yet, fall is my favorite time of year, and with Labor Day right around the corner (bringing with it the unofficial end of summer), it seems my dream world is about to become my reality. This three-day weekend, explore all that Mother Nature has to offer with one of these perfect getaways. We’ve rounded up 15 of the coziest cabins we could find (all available on AirBnB!) to help you usher in the brilliant season that is autumn. So pack up your softest sweaters, your warmest socks, and head down to one of these blissful retreats.
